Subject: Re: [BOU:] Reading question


In "Les héritiers"(1964), Bourdieu and Passeron analyze the influence of 
the heritage coming from family on the school orientation of the students 
and the fact that school system reproduces class domination by favorising 
students at high cultural capital coming from their family environment 
because of the organization of school reflecting the same culture. You can 
also see "La reproduction" (1970), again from Bourdieu and Passeron, that 
continues that research.

In English, you can find those translations:

- Bourdieu. Pierre, and Jean-Claude Passeron. The Inheritors: French 
Students and their Relations to Culture. Trans. Richard Nice. Chicago: U of 
Chicago P, 1979.

- Reproduction in Education, Society and Culture. Trans. Richard Nice. 
London: Sage Publications, 1977.

Good readings!
